Vodafone Germany is expanding its fibre network in Mainz to bring increased capacity to more properties.

The company recently upgraded its fibre optic cable network with DOCSIS 3.1 gigabit technology. 

This was designed to allow more than 100,000 households internet at up to 1Gb/s. In large parts of the Mainz city area, around 45,000 properties benefit from several dozen new fibre optic lines, with around 100 new fibre optic nodes also being built in the Gonsenheim, Neustadt and Zentrum expansion areas in Mainz. 

The works fall under the company’s gigabit strategy, with a commitment to providing two thirds of all Germans with gigabit connections this year. Its investment program is designed to not only upgrade the entire cable network in the current distribution area, but also to drive expansion where it is most needed - in rural areas. 

Hannes Ametsreiter, CEO at Vodafone Germany said: ‘With our expansion, we are strengthening our existing data highway in several cities by building new fibre optic lines and the latest fibre optic technology. Fibre optics are thus closer to the customer than ever before at relatively low construction costs. This increases the stability in our gigabit network and ensures even better performance.’

The expansion in Mainz is due for completion in September.
